Courteney Cox is home on Cougar Town

Monday, Sep 7, 2009

Courteney Cox has found her groove with Cougar Town. The 45-year-old television actress said she is more enthusiastic about the series than anything she has ever done.

Cox plays a divorced mother trying to find love in Florida. She said: “I hope this show is a huge hit and that people love it. Because I like playing this character more than any character I’ve ever played.”

Bill Lawrence, co-creator of Cougar with Kevin Biegel, said Cox’s character, Jules, is built around her real-life personality. Lawrence said: “I wanted her to be like Courteney. If you talk to Courteney when she’s off-guard, or when she’s being herself, she’s incredibly frank, she’s incredibly brassy. Very opinionated, very self-deprecating. But at heart she’s still a goofball.”
